I thought I’d do a post with some atheist vs Christian worldview quotes as quotes seem to have a great way of catching people’s attention with their wit and ability to look at things from a peculiar angle. The following worldview quotes help show us how so many great thinkers like Eric Metaxas, C.S Lewis, and Lee Strobel believe in a Biblical worldview for a lot of very good reasons. It also shows us the other side of the coin – the atheist worldview. As Christian parents, it’s important to show both sides of the arguments, and let our children make sense of all these worldview arguments they will hear throughout their lives.
In this post, we’ll look at:
- Biblical Christian Worldview Quotes
- Naturalist and Athiest Worldview Quotes and
- Quotes Showing the Difference Between the Athiest and Christian Worldviews
Let’s get started!
Quotes about Worldview Quotes
Everyone’s assumptions affect their worldview. – Rebbecca Devitt, Why on Earth Homeschool.
We live by a worldview based on assumptions we have learned, have experienced and have been taught. We then extrapolate these assumptions to fill in the blanks. We believe our assumptions are rooted in truth. We feel we know it and have experienced it. Therefore it must be true. But, in reality, we’re assuming it. – Rebbecca Devitt, Why on Earth Homeschool.

In some schools, the moral compass is now so relative that right and wrong are decided by that which causes most frustration to school authorities.

Under a relative worldview, limits are never static. – Rebbecca Devitt, Why on Earth Homeschool.
Education and Theiest Worldview Quotes
Public education…is one of the fundamental rules of popular or legitimate government. If children are brought up in common, in the bosom of equality, if they are imbued with the laws of the state and the precepts of the general will, if they are taught to respect these above all things, if they are surrounded by examples and objects which constantly remind them of a tender mother who nourishes them, of the love she bears them, of the inestimable benefits they receive from her, and of the return they owe her, we cannot doubt they will learn to cherish one another mutually as brothers. – Jean Jaques Rousseau.
Visit a typical science classroom and you will discover far more than empirical facts being taught. The dominant worldview among scientific intellectuals is evolutionary naturalism, which holds that humans are essentially biochemical machines. – Nancy Pearcey
Quotes Showing the Difference Between the Athiest and Christian Worldviews
In the biblical worldview, the purpose of all creation is to benefit man.

Trees and animals are venerated, while man is simply one more animal in the ecosystem – and largely a hindrance, not an asset. – Dennis Prager
It is always good to explore the stuff you don’t agree with, to try and understand a different lifestyle or foreign worldview. I like to be challenged in that way, and always end up learning something I didn’t know. – Laura Linney
I know, when I was growing up, a lot of the views I was listening to, it was a worldview that was not helpful. The world even sold me a false idea of what the good life was, and I wish that people would have helped me to think better about how to interact with that worldview. Trip Lee
I am who I am, and I’m not going to tell someone I don’t have the worldview I have. That doesn’t mean I’m not open-minded and won’t meet with anybody. – Kathy Szeliga
